Hot-button drugs such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine are being secretly adopted by National Football League teams, according to one of the NFL’s biggest stars.
“I do know, behind the scenes — this is 100% true — there are many teams who are recommending a lot of the same treatments that I got for their players,” Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said in an interview Tuesday with Pat McAfee’s SirusXM show.
Along with ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, Rodgers was treated for COVID-19 with monoclonal antibodies, zinc, and vitamins C and D. The Packers star told McAfee the treatment was recommended by podcaster and friend Joe Rogan, who recovered quickly from his own bout with COVID-19.
“I’m not some uneducated person who’s throwing stuff out there,” Rodgers said. “If you want to rip on me because I took horse dewormer, and whatever else you want to talk about, that’s fine. But I also got better in 48 hours. And I had symptoms.”
